This was my 6th visit to Yangon, but my first stay at the Golden Butterfly. The hotel was chosen for its close proximity to the Shwedegon, our only reason for this visit. The hotel is ageing, aren't we all, but it still maintains some of its old grandeur with its beautiful entrance displaying timber craftsmanship of days gone by. The reception was managed professionally in a friendly welcoming manner. The room allocated was airy and clean, with a very large bed, TV and room safe. The bathroom was of normal size,clean and well maintained however the old style shower bath configuration may be difficult for the aged or those with hip and back problems as the bath stands approximately 50 cm high. We were only at the hotel for three days/two nights and as stated earlier our sole purpose this visit was to see the Shwedegon. During OUR stay the staff were friendly and helpful, arranged taxis for us and provided us with guidance as to shopping. The restaurant staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, providing me with a large mug for my breakfast tea rather than the usual 'thimble' size cups. The pool area was clean and a nice place to finish one's evening with a cold beer and a glass of wine. Overall this is a low to medium priced hotel ideally situated for a visit to the Shwedegon. Recommended though older or infirm guests should check out the bathroom configuration before booking.…
Just got a full body massage done here and I must say I am very easy to please usually. However, pathetic is an understatement for my review here. In a 90 mins massage, 20 mins were used to clean you and was finished 15 mins earlier. The quality of the massage was also below average. Strongly urge you to go to a place like Health Blessing, a few times better
Walked in the restaurant for take-away - as it was quite late I was quite grateful and didn't pay too much attention to the waiters being sassy and mocking. Bill was presented in kyats - i asked to pay in dollars and get change in kyats, which has never been an issue in 2 weeks across Myanmar. They came back with dollars. I insisted nicely, the waiter pretended to go back in but came back laughing at my face with the dollars, saying they would give me 1000 kyats for one dollar (official rate being 1350, which we used to divide the bill earlier). The waiter brought me to the front desk, mocking me in front of 3 security guys out front and shouted in burmese to the girls at front desk, who didn't care to listen to me and laughingly stood by the waiter for the rip-off exchange rate, incapable of any further explanation. The level of English and care for the paying customer is a far cry from the hotel category they pretend to be in. Left with my dollars, startled, while they acted as they were going to call above manager. Food was good, too bad I found human hair in it. Worst hospitality experience ever, let alone in Asia. …
This is my second trip to yangon. The hotel below average if I compare it with other hotel, the value I pay in my first trip and service I got there much better. If you'r coming to see the country and visit bogoda maybe good option. I don't recommend this hotel for people who are coming in business.
For the rating we found that this was OK. The location was good for us with a park nearby and easy access to Yangon Central. Rooms, beds, wifi, bathroom were all as we would expect at this level. Breakfast was also good. Typical finish in bathrooms with some mould, etc but all functional.
